  8. Road cycling is a fun and exciting hobby that will never get boring. There are always new routes to explore, goals to achieve, and challenges to overcome.

  9. It is a great way to relieve stress and improve your mental health. The rhythmic motion of pedalling and the fresh air and scenery can help clear your mind and boost your mood.
